    Helping Uninstalling A App

    Ok so I download this Fox News App from the App World and I didn't end up liking it so I uninstalled but now no matter if I delete the icon when I reboot it shows right back up gggrrr... is there another way to uninstall it to get it to go away?

    Go into your options then advanced then applications and delete it that way.

    Have you tried going back into App World and deleting it through there? App World remembers what apps you have installed and if I remember correctly (since I don't have it installed right now) you should be to uninstall it through there. Let us know if that works.

    If I recall correctly there are some apps that even when uninstalled the icon will stay. What will happen is that after a few hours the icon will disappear. So see if the icon is still there in the morning. If it is then you may have to wipe the phone and reinstall the OS.

    Kris, try highlighting the icon then hit your BB button, then delete. That worked for me. Typical of Fox News, they just won't go away.
